  • Killing a Jidra causes one of the other monsters to spawn.
  • Defeating the large, leafless Jidra opens the vortex (and doesn't spawn a kid).
    • The large Jidra has the same special attack changes as Cemetery Cherry
    • Leafstorm dispels all effects and gives Slow instead of damage.
  • The Jidra never drop Ancient Beastcoins, but the others always drop one.
  • All enemies are immune to Lullaby.
  • When all enemies are dead, the Time, Items and Restore chests spawn. You can only open one.
    • They actually appear farther south than shown on the map.
  • The Items chest has 4 Ancient Beastcoins and an AF+1 material (RNG, WHM, SMN, BLM, ?).


Third Floor

  • Enemies: Armoury Crate x7 (Mimics)
    • Often drop an Ancient Beastcoin.
    • They only aggro when someone clicks on them to determine whether they are mimics or real chests. They are passive otherwise.
  • Defeating one of the Mimics opens the vortex.
  • The Time, Items and Restore chests are hidden among the Mimics. You can open all three.
    • They are randomly distributed--they are not in the places marked on the map.
    • You can't tell which chest it is which without opening it; they all look like Items chests.
  • Note: Mimics have the Draw In ability, so trying to use a SMN and a pet to find the real chests won't work.
  • The Items chest has 4 Ancient Beastcoins, 0-2 AF+1 materials (NIN, DRG, BLM, SAM, WHM) and a synthesis material (Oxblood, Shell Powder, Light Steel Ingot, Clot Plasma, Darksteel Ore).

  • Elementals of the same type link.
  • Elementals aggro to magic.
  • The Dark Elementals are resistant to Lullaby.
  • Defeating the Elementals corresponding to the ingame day on which you entered the floor (or engaged the first elemental?) causes the final chest to spawn at the exit.
  • The final chest has 4-5 Ancient Beastcoins, ~2 AF+1 materials (THF, BST, MNK, RDM, PLD, ?), a Charcoal Chip and a possibility of a Metal Chip.
